ANN ARBOR, Mich. // PRNewswire // -- In honor of Domino's new Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes, Domino's wanted to bring the lava, chocolate lava that is, to one of America's famous volcanoes, Mount St. Helens. With no Domino's locations in the area to deliver, Domino's decided to go extreme by hiring a local helicopter to bring in over 1,000 Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes to tourists as they enjoyed breathtaking views of Mount St. Helens.
"Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes are unique and unexpected, so we wanted to do something extreme and unexpected for this appealing new product," said Jenny Fouracre, Domino's spokesperson. "With people naturally thinking about hot lava at Mount St. Helens, we thought we'd bring the lava to them. Since the nearest Domino's location takes almost two hours to drive to, we decided to make this extreme by flying in a helicopter to let the volcano explode...with flavors of rich chocolate fudge!"
Domino's new Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes, oven-baked chocolate cakes, crunchy on the outside, with warm flowing chocolate fudge inside were inspired by a combination of chocolate and textures. As Domino's newest permanent addition to the menu, Chocolate Lava Crunch Cakes are sure to satisfy that chocolate craving.
Followers of Domino's Pizza on Facebook and Twitter got early clues that this unique event was going to happen. The event was reported on throughout the day on Twitter by a Domino's Pizza delivery expert in the helicopter.
